BEST NEW TRACKS: FKA TWIGS - LIGHTS ON (REX RIOT & OUROS REMIX)
District of Columbia based DJ Rex Riot has teamed up with the mysterious Ouros to completely transform FKA twigs' cool new song, "Lights On."
Much the way they did in their previous collaborative remix of Lana Del Rey's "Black Beauty," Riot and Ouros bring out the darker side of this jam. "Lights On (Rex Riot & Ouros Remis)" packs on the distorted bass and brooding ambience, making it the perfect dance floor anthem just in time for Halloween. They take what was a soft, whispery number about a young relationship, hence the chorus: "When I trust you we can do it with the lights on," and turn it into a beast of their own making. They still keep the melody intact, and the bridge on this baby is down right cinematic.
